Greasy Bastard Cluster-Crux
|203 page views|
This is a very pumpy one pitch climb that doesn't provide many rest opportunities due to the negative tilt to the wall. Start at the far south corner of the crag and work the dihedral up to the small ledge just to the left of the face. Transition out from here onto the face and climb up the center of the two crack system. Handholds are limited, but all there. Continue up about 10 feet, using a left hand side-pull around the corner and a pointy flake on right (crux). After moving through crux, continue up another 10 feet and traverse right towards base of chimney. Continue up and through chimney to walk off (top rope can be set with gear and long webbing/cordelette). Be careful of loose rocks.
Start at the far south corner of the crag
Protection is all there, although difficult to place with limited rest positions. Set of C4s up to #2 and medium sized stoppers should suffice. Red C3 was all useful for pro before the traverse.
